Château d'Yquem Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend Sauternes 1995

Member Review by ahota:

This makes fois gras sink to it little chubby knees and open wide. In my mind the most exquisite dessert wine that have ever graced my tongue. I wanted to open wide for my sommelier.

My first wine I drink was a 57 Lafite Rothschild and I don´t like it at all, I was 15 years old. One year later my fathers brother who was maniac on Sauternes. I remember his wine cellar with all this sweet wines, a palett from bright yellow to dark brown colors. One day I was there with him for a helping hand, after the work, he ask me if want to try a wine. I said, I don´t like wine, he said, but you have not drink a Château d'Yquem the caramel of all caramels. He put up to huge glasses on a small table and 1 Vintage 1900. I was in trance, so sweet, so many flavors. I still remeber this wines i my head and for the first time in my life i get a little drunk. Château d'Yquem is one of best wine in the world. Try the 1990 is amazing wine.

The botrytis on this vintage is pristine and wrapped nicely around the apricots, pears, laurel and honey. Yquem's Sauternes are rare and highly coveted. Still considered young by most afficionados but just beginning to evolve. You could drink tonight or hold for years to come. Drink with a slight chill.

Tasted at the chateau. O.K. - I think this is better than the 1990! Intense hue. Brilliant expressive apricot/orangey nose with tonnes of botrytis. Unctuous and fat. Slightly lower in acidity than other vintages. Very concentrated with an incredibly ... Neal Martins Wine Journal. A Sauternes Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1995 Chateau dYquem 750ml
